As the shaky US-North Korea summit is set to begin, the parties must search for common interestND


Benjamin Habib, The Conversation, Monday June 11 2018

US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un will meet on Tuesday for their much talked about summit in Singapore. For the event to be productive, the negotiations will need a base line shared interest that both parties can agree on.

Trump has hinted that he might offer a formal treaty between North and South on ending the war. In terms of negotiating leverage, both parties have strengths and weaknesses, but the strategic importance of Seoul means that any attack on the South Korean capital would be devastating for the US.
